It is not hard to start printing and binding books. the tricky part is getting the books in printable form and dealing with the internet on the road.

there is a parts list on a page linked to this page.


in the short term, you dont need the internet on the road because all the books fit on a hard drive, but this will not always be the case.

to get books in printable form, we took the gutenberg books and reformatted them in MS word (example
http://www.archive.org/texts/texts-details-db.php?collection=opensource&collectionid=nancy_20021007101039 )

for the wizard, we scanned it at 300 dpi color tif and then uploaded it to the archive and did the conversions. we would be happy to do this for all books that dont have rights problems.

let us know how we can help!
